tonight I learned something about mina

First off, Celeste is not a picky eater. If I ever accidentally leave something potentially edible on the kitchen countertop, it will meet her stomach asap.

Second, Mina is much more discerning. Or so I thought.

Tonight, I made a curry that involved much of the vegetable kingdom. I knew Celeste would participate in taste-testing all these plant-based wonders, but what about Mina? 

Well, i discovered a few things:
- Mina and Celeste love carrots. A lot.
- Mina loves bell peppers, more so than Celeste
- Celeste, however, loves bell pepper bits - everything Mina left, Celeste felt was the best thing since sliced bread.
- Celeste likes spinach, but only after all other options have been consumed
- Mina and Celeste like garbanzo beans and rice.

I'm not surprised about Celeste (she IS my garbage disposal unit), but Mina showed me that she can be versatile when it comes to food. I'm so proud.

The curry wasn't as fantabulous as I thought it would be. However, it was chock-full of cayenne and cumin and other wonderful spices, which always makes me happy. I bet it will taste super awesome tomorrow for lunch. Celeste and Mina think so too, but they aren't getting any! Ha! Take that, dogs!

Bryndy is firmly opposed to spinach.
Lyla thinks Bryndy is right about that.
They agree about the carrots. Carrots is gooooood.
No peppers.
Pickles are also disliked, although seedless cucumbers are acceptable.
They had garbonzo beans and rice with their dinner tonight (and apples and yogurt and peas). Oh, and holistic kibble. Expensive as hell and I still buy it for them although I will soon be homeless.
It's all about the dogs.

Can I come over for lunch?

Celeste likes pickles and jalapenos.

It's definitely all about the dogs. I cringe every time I figure out how much I spend a month on their food. Damn money-suckers.

Come over for lunch any time! It would be expensive, but well worth it. :)

I miss the vegetable thieving days of The Pook's kittenhood (see user pic). He used to think steamed carrots, broccoli and squash were, like, OMG SOOOO GOOD NOM NOM NOM! Now the only plants he likes to nibble are dried seaweed, kitty grass and cat nip.

I wonder if Celeste will ever stop with her vegetable thieving days and follow The Pook's path? She'd probably love seaweed, kitty grass and catnip.

i'm always suprised when i find something that puppy WONT eat. so far theres only 3 things i know of that he'll turn down. celery (only good as a chew toy, not meant for consumption), rhubarb (cant say i blame him), and mushrooms (dead fungus?). the dork loves used tissues and tried to lick up sheetrock dust before getting locked out of the basement. the boy does not have discerning tastes.

She ADORES tissues like they're going out of style.

Puppy and her are like twins but not. :)
